How To Court Workers

How to Court Workers

"Perks That Work" (Cover Story, Oct. 11) was wonderful and informative, but one important employee benefit was missing: prepaid legal services. In Europe, 80% of workers have this benefit, and a recent business magazine article showed that now 20% of the largest American companies have it.

Prepaid legal services can include preventive services, including unlimited monthly telephone consultation with a lawyer and the cost of telephone calls and letters undertaken by an attorney on the member's behalf. Some plans also include motor vehicle citation and accident legal assistance, which helps to keep insurance rates down. The plan I'm on runs about $4.25 per week. Employers can offer it to employees with no company participation or some percentage, but either way it's perceived by the employee as a great benefit.
